For those wanting to really ensure a great nest egg for retirement, being conscious of paying too much tax early on is critical in making the most of your money

Superannuation in conjunction with residential investment property are perhaps the most tax effective vehicles that can be used by Australians to build their wealth. With a maximum tax rate of 15% it is enticing for most. This tax rate drops to 0% in the pension phase. Capital gains tax is a major consideration outside of superannuation however a capital gain on a property that has been held for more than 12 months, within a SMSF has a maximum tax rate of 10%; or 0% if in the pension phase. This can potentially save you hundreds of thousands of dollars.

SMSF are incredibly favourable for this very reason and a fantastic starting point to get your money working better for you.
